Anatomy of a Premise Line Book Signing and Mini-Workshop with Author Jeff Lyons

Join Jeff Lyons for a powerful experience designed to streamline your writing development process; save you hours, weeks, and even months of wasted writing time; and arm you with craft tools that will serve you for many years to come as you move toward your writing dreams.

If a story is going to fail, it will first do so at the premise level. Knowing how to create, design, and validate a story premise idea are essential skills every writer needs in their toolbox. The premise line is the only reliable tool that can tell you, before you start writing pages, whether or not your story will “work.” It is your canary in the coal mine, and when fully mastered can save you time, money and months of potentially wasted writing. In Anatomy of a Premise Line, readers will learn how to master the process of premise line development—the essential first step in any book, screenplay, or creative nonfiction work's development process, thus cutting development time in half.

Join us for a “mini-workshop” and book signing event with Anatomy of a Premise Line author Jeff Lyons. Get a “crash course” in his 7-step premise development methodology, meet the author, and ask your story-development questions. 

What Will You Discover?

  • How can you save time, money, and wasted writing? — This book will show you how to do all three and do it reliably over and over for every story you write.
  • Can you tell if your story will work? — Lots of writers think they are telling a story, but they are not. This book gives you a guaranteed method for figuring out early if your story is a real story, and whether it will have legs.
  • Is your story high concept? — Learn what high concept really means and how to quickly assess to what degree your story is or is not high concept, and then what to do next.
  • What is a story premise and why should you care? — This is one of the most confusing ideas in creative writing and one that all writer need to understand, because a premise is so much more than just a pitch tool — it's your lifeline!
  • What is a log line - really? — Another confusing term that is essential for every writer to master, because almost everyone thinks premise lines are log lines — they are not! Learn the difference and why the difference matters to your writing.
  • Can you test any story idea and know if it will work, before you start writing? — The answer is "yes," if you know the 7-Step Premise Testing Process. This book will teach that to you.
